Why did we create Kallum’s Rainbow?
Well......In 2006 I welcomed my first born into the world - I was 17. At that moment I knew I wanted another baby and for them to be close in age, just like my brother and I are. The following August I had my second child at the age of 18 - 11 months between my two boys.
My world. My Family was complete, well so I thought.
October 2007 a normal day, both boys having a nap while I washed the bottles and did the normal “Mummy jobs”. Kallum was ten and a half weeks old and I will never forget the worst day of my life. I didn't know how I was going to move on, how could I carry on?
Life become a mission, a roller coaster which never stopped. We went on to have another child in 2010 and the fear which came with it was horrendous. I struggled to enjoy pregnancy and the early days cause of the fear I would lose him too. Through experiences and meeting other parents I realized we all felt the same and I had a connection to many other parents who I had only met due to the same path of child loss. Having others who understood me helped and still does to this day, it keeps me going strong.
I choose to believe that the cards I have been dealt in life are because I am strong enough to handle it, Kallum was here to make me the person I am today. To open my eyes to the world and what can happen.
One of my favorite quotes- "Look for something positive in each day even if some days you have to look harder."
